Where do North London locals go?

Victoria Stakes

Perfect pub for dog owners, as it is pet friendly. It makes a great end to a walk around Alexandra Park. Food is amazing too!

W. Martyn

A real Muswell Hill institution, this tea and coffee retailer has been in business since 1897 selling their own brand products!

Chriskitch

A very cosy and cute little café in Muswell Hill. They make very tasty salads and freshly baked homemade cakes that everyone will fall in love with. It's definitely a great place to go for brunch or just a nice cup of tea!

Chooks

A delicious American-style restaurant serving mouth-watering chicken dishes. The buttermilk chicken made using their secret recipe is awesome!

Fasta

Serving tasty pick and mix pasta dishes, sandwiches and salads, I sometimes grab my lunch from here.

Park Road Pools and Fitness

The outdoor Lido is fun! If you are not feeling brave, there are indoor pools too and fitness classes. This is a great leisure centre to take all of the family, with a children's soft play area, children's yoga and martial arts classes.

Walter Purkis & Sons

This family-run fishmongers sells high-quality fish at a great price. I always pop down on a Saturday to pick up something fresh for dinner...

The Flower Seller

This local florist is the perfect place to pick up flowers for that special someone in your life...

Cheeses

From firm favourites to more unusual tastes, this cheese shop is a foodies dream!

Alexandra Palace Ice Rink

A fantastic day out for all the family all year round!

The Haberdashery

Beautiful, vintage-style café. Great for brunch.

Toff's

Best chippy in North London, or even the whole of London! You can even sit in too.

Kiss the Sky

This bar is the perfect destination for after-work drinks. They have happy hour deals every single day and a quiz on a Monday that's always good fun.

The Scullery Cookshop

Any cooks dream, this shop stocks everything from everyday items to the more obscure things the recipe books demand!

Maynard Arms

Everything you'd want in a local pub - a lovely garden, tasty food and a great atmosphere all through the week.

"The tradition of "Swearing on the Horns" originated in the pubs around Highgate and involved swearing under 'oath' the commitment to the merriment and debauchery that would ensue, followed by the kissing of a pair of animal horns or a pretty woman."
